On-call, on the move staff

On-call nurses, mobile salesforce, remote support personnel who are not necessarily contact center agents can easily receive calls from incoming queue. They can also access customer data, receive signatures using app's signature pad for confirmation and also scan barcodes. The data collected will be linked to the call and the customer through an API call to your company's CRM Servers.On-call nurses, repair technicians, sales agents can use Comstice Mobile Agent App. Combined with Comstice Location-Based Call routing feature, you can send the call to the mobile agent who is closest to the incident or the caller.
Remote, Home-Based Agents
Your home-based agents probably already have their desktop or laptop computers available for agent functionality. However, in practice they are not sitting and staring at their computer screen all the time. Mobile Agent App helps them to retrieve the calls through their cell number while being able to see all call details through Comstice Mobile Agent App. So the chanceses of missing a call is minimal.
You can send the calls to the staff who are available on the mobile phone but don't have immediate access to the PC, since they are on the move inside the store or campus. These people are not part of the call center, but the callers would like to access them directly. They can include facilities managers, security managers or mobile IT support personnel.
High Availability in Call Centers
Mobile Agent App helps to be able to seamlessly work on your existing call centers even when there is an outage. Contact Center servers are generally hosted in data centers or in the cloud. In case of a network outage, your desktop agents can use their cell phones and login as an agent and start taking calls. They can also retrieve and update customer data through the built-in browser that is directed to your CRM platform in the cloud.
